What educators are saying

Loved this resource! Brimming with lots of awesome information and very accessible to my students. Thanks!!
When the students were on distance learning, this resource was great. Students were engaged and learned quite a lot. Excellent resource.


Students utilize this social studies resource to practice research skills and cite evidence while learning about the American Revolution. Students receive support from the embedded online web and video links and instructions for each slide. This history resource is for students in grades 3 - 5.


Teach the American Revolution social studies content, then use this digital notebook for practice while integrating research and writing skills.

  • Use it as a traditional Interactive Notebook.
  • Use it one slide at a time to complement a particular lesson on the American Revolution.
  • Use it as independent work such as a classroom project or homework.

One slide includes 15 HYPERLINKS to trusted, reliable, kid-friendly free sites that the students can use for research and information gathering in conjunction with the print resources you provide. Some are print only, some are video sites, and some are a mix of various media.

The Interactive Digital Notebook includes most of the important events, people, and places of the American Revolution.
